Wow, your mom having you at 48!

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, January 30, 2007 | 0 comments

Wow is all I can say about your mom having you at 48. You are right in that genetics does play a part.


My friend who had the baby at 45 with her own eggs went to NYU too!


BTW, I forgot to mention that my grandmother (my mother's mother) had children well into her 40's. The fact that you look young, discounting any sun damage, which isn't an indicator of internal blood supply and organ function, is very promising.


One day at work I asked my girlfriend if she thought that I was too old to have a baby...she then told me that her husband's (he is around 50 now) mom didn't start having children (she had 2) until she was in her 40's as she married late!


My friend in NYC had 2 IVF babies with many BFNs in between. Her first BFP was when she was 41, and the baby was born when she was 42. The second BFP was when she was 44, and the baby was born when she was 45. I think because you've already had success in your 40's, your chances are much better than those who haven't had successes yet.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
